General Meeting

One class of shares

Opera has no limitations on the transferability of shares and has one class of shares. Each share entitles the holder to one vote.

A key concept in Opera’s approach to Corporate Governance is the equal treatment of shareholders. Opera has one class of shares and all shares are freely transferable (with possible exceptions due to foreign law restrictions on sale and offering of securities). All shares in the Company carry equal voting rights. The shareholders exercise the highest authority in the Company through the General Meeting. All shareholders are entitled to submit items to the agenda, and to meet, speak, and vote at the General Meeting.

Notice of general meeting and voting rights

Through the General Meeting, the shareholders exercise the highest authority in the Company. General Meetings are held in accordance with the Code. All shareholders are entitled to submit items to the agenda, meet, speak and vote at General Meetings. The Annual General Meeting is held each year before the end of June. Extraordinary General Meetings may be called by the Board of Directors at any time. The Company’s auditor or shareholders representing at least five percent of the total share capital may demand that an Extraordinary General Meeting be called.

General Meetings are convened by written notice to all shareholders with known addresses no later than 21 days prior to the date of the meeting. Proposed resolutions and supporting information, including information on how to be represented at the meeting, vote by proxy and the right to propose items for the General Meeting, is generally made available to the shareholders no later than the date of the notice. According to the Company’s Articles of Association, attachments to the calling notice may be posted on the Company’s website and not sent to shareholders by ordinary mail. Shareholders who wish to receive the attachments may request the Company to mail such attachments free of charge. Resolutions and the supporting information are sufficiently detailed and comprehensive to allow shareholders to form a view on all matters to be considered in the meeting.

Shareholders who are unable to be present, are encouraged to participate by proxy and a person who will be available to vote on behalf of shareholders as their proxy will be nominated. Proxy forms will allow the proxy-holder to cast votes for each item separately. A final deadline for shareholders to give notice of their intention to attend the meeting or vote by proxy will be set in the notice for the meeting.

Extraordinary general meeting

Extraordinary General Meetings may be called by the Board of Directors at any time. The Company’s auditor or shareholders representing at least five percent of the total share capital may demand that an Extraordinary General Meeting be called.
